"hannity" starts right now. welcome to "hannity." there is a mutiny growing in the democratic party against president obama and the entire staff. we have the proof. president clinton, the man that president obama turned to, claiming that the president's promise, if you like your plan and doctor you can keep your plan and doctor. watch this. >> so i personally believe even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor his commitment to federal government and let those people keep what they got. >> now, you know when things are really bad, when bill clinton, one of the most prominent voices, if not the most prominent voice in the democratic party calls on the president to man up and keep his word. don't forget this, the president said this about his buddy
party. former president bill clinton says president obama should keep his promise to americans. demanding an investigation and she is up for re-election and she voted for obama care. plus is the head obama care website guy too busy fixing it to testify in the house tomorrow? and the miami dolphin's owner says he is shocked at the team's bullying scandal. hello, welcome today to the real story. we are now wrapping up his first briefing since the latest reports started strict tricklin today. but making clear that the white house anticipates it. >> he was evasive as to whether or not it would be the 15th. >> he said they are coming. but the numbers that they have seen so far show only 50,000 people or less so far in the 36 states that are covered by the federal marketplace actually enrolling. and from whether we are today. onlyp 139 days to get that number up to 7 million. we know many americans have been receiving cancellation notices from their plans that do not meet the affordable care act's high standards. we heard from former president bill clinton he thinks that is wrong. >>
events in american history, hurricane katrina, to president obama trying to help millions of people. and as the president met with insurance executives to continue to fix the health carolout, former vice president china was playing ugly. >> we look at the mess that has been created out of obama care, by the president having said you can keep your policy if you like it, guaranteed, period. that turns out that was a lie. and he repeated it over and over and over again. >> can he kidding? are we all getting pumped? yes. that is dick cheney. that dick cheney. the man who led the charge to go to war in iraq over weapons of mass destruction that they still haven't found. it's like rand paul slamming someone for plagiarism. or like, i don't know, mitt romney slamming the health care law he helped write and calling the president dishonest. oh, wait a minute, that actually happened today. >> the real problem with the president's plan is not just the rollout. that's implementation, and glitches of various kinds. it should have been done better, but it wasn't. but the real problem that the pre
panel will be here. he's fired up about how the obama administration handled obama care. >>> remember the guy who admitted to using crack cocaine. we have video of him going nutso and it has taken us a while to get all the bleeps in there. press secretary jay carney again taking tough questions on obama care. what did the president mean when he said you could keep your plan if you like it and when will the website be functioning? what is the latest on the healthcare.gov website? >> the folks here says it is getting better every day. carney says it will be working better by the end of the month. he said he can't guarantee it will be working perfectly. he said those working on the problem 24/7 are dealing with the bugs. >> i can tell you that the objective here has not changed. it is still that the website and it's problems are being addressed by a team of experts and that work is continuing around the clock every day and by the end of the month we expect that the site should be funging at the standards necessary for the vast majority of the american people. >> the center still wouldn't

obama care rollout may have hurt democrat terry mcauliffe and his race for governor but not badly enough to spell defeat. he survives a nasty slugfest with tea party republican ken cuccinelli by three percentage points. ooh he just squeaked by. we assembled a full roster of correspondents and analysts to walk us through the results and what they mean to the rest of the country. first up, state of virginia and candy crowley. welcome, candy. so obama care and the government shutdown surely factors in the virginia race but so were women. here is the winner, terry mcauliffe. >> the truth is that this election was never a choice between democrats and republicans. it was a choice about whether virginia would continue the mainstream bipartisan tradition that has served us so well over the last decade, at a time when washington was often broken, just think about what virginia has been able to accomplish when we work together. >> so candy, in the end the tea party took a hit in virginia, but its candidate almost pulled out because of obama care. so how worried should the democrats be despite the
, a full throated defense of what we call now obama care and the president also joking if and when it becomes successful, folks on the other side are going to be calling it by another name. it seems as if we saw a real deliberate shift in strategy, no? >> reporter: yeah, i think what we're seeing is that -- what came out of chuck's interview yesterday, craig, and a lot of today was this whole idea of an apology, that the president was apologizing for the health care law. that's the way the gop was spinning it. by coming out and having the full throated defense by saying this is a good law and we still very much believe in it and need, here are the benefits of it and putting that forward, it kind of shifts the narrative from the apology for the law which is being spun if you didn't do that outright, apologized for the folks with individuals policies who got -- weren't able to keep them. it's a strategy that is intentional and being done to control the narrative better into the weekend. and as the president moves on now, he's going down to south florida, miami to do fund raising and
